ROCO is the future of the orchestra. They are the iPhone X to your local symphony's vintage 80s walkie-talkie cell phone. They're able to flex in size from 1 to 40 players based on what they're doing - whether it be a brass quintet in a brewery, a theatrical version of Peter and the Wolf (In an actual zoo. With wolves. Promoting wolf conservation.), or as a full-on chamber orchestra, where they were one of the first to incorporate apps and livestreams into their performances. They're all about building new connections to audiences, and changing how people experience classical music.
They've also commissioned more than 75 new pieces, and even though they're based in Houston, they'll send a crack team of 5 performers (including their founder, oboist, and total rockstar Alecia Lawyer) to play a program of music that they helped to create, ranging from a work inspired by a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale to a trio that uses sticks, blocks and bottles as a rhythm section.
They'll rock the house, tell some stories, and share some laughs along the way, and we promise that you'll walk out with a spring in your step and a smile on your face.
ROCO will change what classical music means to you - they've been called "the most fun you can have with serious music," and I guarantee you this is hands down the most fun you’re ever gonna have in a Crypt...
“The numinous setting of Crypt Sessions lends emotional power to the series’ genre-bending programs.”
